Incest is a scourge on society in every part of the world, every level of society, and a family somewhere on every block. It spans generations, poisons families, and blights lives. It is nourished and protected by a culture of denial within families, avoidance in society, and blame of the victim.
This is a story of survival and self-denigration, retribution and recovery. It is about the consummate revenge of living well, and the terrible, complex struggle to forgive. It is told from the perspective of the victimized, and of the older and wiser person who has examined her life and determined not to be a victim.
